Bionic Man Ed Eng Finally Gets His LIGBT Title

Posted On: October 21, 2012

Champion Eddie Eng

October 21, 2012

Syosset, NY: Eddie Eng is the most prolific bowler in the LIGBT. He has bowled more qualifying games than anyone; 369 to be exact. He has competed in almost every LIGBT event and up until today he never won an LIGBT trophy. Well that is all history now as Eddie, who resides in Flushing, NY, won the AMF Syosset event and the $1,000 top prize.

You would think Ed would have been nervous bowling for his first title but he bowled like a champion throughout the final shootout. Ed finished with a 254 handicap game to win the title by 26 pins over second place finisher Ken Simpson, Shirley, NY. Ken earned $500 with his 228 game while Dexter Sapp, who bowled an LIGBT record 882 handicap qualifying series, finished third with a 209 worth $250. 

The AMF LIGBT event was fairly high scoring as the cut scores were 718 and 711 respectively. A total of 22 bowlers made the finals and shared in a prize fund exceeding $3,500. A good fall crowd of 89 bowlers filled the center on a beautiful Sunday.

The next LIGBT event is Sunday, November 4th at AMF East Meadow. The top prizes will again be guaranteed to pay $1,000-1st and $500-2nd. There will be two squads offered; 1pm and 3pm. Entry fee is as low as $60 if prepaid and 1 in 5 each squad will advance to the finals. The LIGBT is sponsored by Brunswick, Randi Siegel Law Offices, CLS Custom Upholsterers, and Station Casinos.

Champion Frank Lunghi

East Islip, NY: Frank Lunghi, a senior bowler from Farmingdale, NY, won his first LIGBT title and the $1,000 top prize at East Islip Lanes this past Sunday. Frank defeated Eddie Cintron, Laurelton, NY 207-197 (handicap) to win the title. Eddie took home $500 for his second place finish.

The final shootout was low scoring as the match wasn’t decided until the 10th frame. Frank chopped a spare in the tenth frame which meant Eddie had to fill 20 pins to win the title. But a 5-10 split ended Eddie’s chance at his first LIGBT title. 

The East Islip tournament attracted a crowd of 123 entries with 20 bowlers cashing for the day. Scoring was on the low side as Kegel’s Highway to Hell pattern was put down. The cut scores ranged from 678 to 711. High series of the day went to Eddie Cintron with a 753. The top 5 bowlers in the first squad won DV8 balls donated by Brunswick.  The total payout for the day exceeded $3,000. 
LIGBT’s next tournament is Sunday, October 21st at AMF Syosset. First prize is guaranteed to pay $1,000-1st and there will be 3 squads; noon-2pm-4pm.
